Usually it involves a good few years of apprenticeship before you can start playing around with roof styles. Luckily, British designer Benjamin Hubert has scaled things a touch with this new ‘Roofer’ pendant lamp for Italian manufacturer Fabbian.
The product is called ‘Roofer’ and not ‘Roof’ as a key player in the construction of the lamp is the user him- or himself. A selection of Marrakech-inspired coloured tiles, all the same size, plus various steel frames, allow the user to be part of the design process by customising the object.
The tiles are manufactured from a flexible silicone polymer, which permits them to be curved around the metal frames, while being translucent.
